Smooth skin and full lips are associated with youth and beauty. As your body’s natural collagen begins to wear out with age, wrinkles and creases appear. With time, the muscle and soft tissue that give your lips their fullness will gradually diminish, making your lips look thin and indistinct.
Soft tissue augmentation is a procedure used to instantly enhance your appearance, without down time, by filling in depressed facial wrinkles and augmenting the lips to give them a fuller, younger appearance.
A wide assortment of FDA approved products are now available to inject into the lips to fill wrinkles and enhance lip volume. Preferred modern fillers include Restylane (Lyft, Silk, Defyne, Refyne), Radiesse, Juvederm, Belotero, Volbella, Sculptra and Silikon 1000.
At the Gateway Aesthetic Institute, we have performed thousands of these procedures with fabulous results and with no serious side effects.
